Jason & TOri

We met in the late 90’s and soon fell madly in love. But after marriage and walking through a few years of status quo mediocre, together, we discovered a great paradox—the beauty of any marriage is found only as you engage in the battle for the relationship. We realized early on that we were either going to fight against each other in a personal war or fight alongside one another in a spiritual battle. Stop fighting face to face and start battling shoulder to shoulder! We went through the former to get to the latter, and only by God’s grace have discovered that marriage and family relationships are indeed very beautiful gifts! That’s why we decided to share our journey through this website. We want to give you the ammunition you need to fight the battle with us and experience the beauty as we have. So if that’s you, then mount up, join us on the ride, and get ready to go to a brand new place in your marriage!

The Art of Attraction

Allure – the quality of being powerfully and mysteriously attractive or fascinating. Think back to the very first time you found yourself crazy attracted to your spouse. Was it when you first met?

How A Good Marriage Proves Our Love For God

It’s easier to love God than to love people. Why? Because God is perfect. People are not (well, that’s debatable :)) God never fails. He doesn’t have bad breath. He doesn’t pass gas under the bed sheets. It’s much harder to love people than to love Him. But God says, “if you say you love … Continued
